It's the week before we get the sales numbers of the first of the summer blockbuster that hit the home market, so it comes as little surprise that the overall sales are weak this week. There were six new releases to reach the top 30 on this week's sales chart, including earning three of the top four spots, but it was a case of quantity above quality. The Office - Season Five was the lone bright spot, as the TV on DVD release captured first place with 407,000 units sold and a very impressive opening week sales of $13.91 million.

Eight new releases reached the top 30 on the sales chart this week, and six of them finished in the top seven.
The new top-selling DVD was State of Play with 345,000 units sold, which was enough to generate $5.51 million in consumer spending at retail.
Heroes - Season Three placed second in terms of units sold with 296,000, but thanks to its TV on DVD pricing, it was clearly the highest grossing DVD of the week with $11.10 million in sales.

Just as it did on the sales chart, State of Play topped all new releases finishing first on this week's rental chart.

It's the calm before the storm on the home market. There's not a lot of TV on DVD releases this week, but that's temporary, while the summer blockbusters will start flooding the market in just two weeks. From that week till the end of the year, there will be a major blockbuster release coming out practically every week. As for this week, the list of top tier releases is not particularly strong, but there are a trio of DVD Pick of the Week contenders. These include Earth on Blu-ray, Supernatural - Season Four on DVD or Blu-ray, and Degrassi - The Next Generation - Season 8 on DVD. Each one has their draws and weaknesses, but all three are worthy of the title.
